Clean your water using God’s free gift of sunshine! The “Batch” Pasteurizer Kit is an adaptation addition to your LeJoy Solar Cooker. If you’re already using the solar power to cook your food, you can now efficiently pasteurize your water with it too using our modification kit!
Our Batch Water Pasteurizer allows you to:
Position your LeJoy Solar Cooker at the angle optimal for receiving the most sunlight at different times of the day.
Increase the functionality of your current LeJoy product with minimal additions to transportation and storage.
Pasteurize your water using solar power!
As our climate seems to be getting worse in more and more places, the chances of experiencing a lack of potable water, due to a fractured water infrastructure, is increasing. Clean potable water is vital. Waterborne pathogens and harmful microbes like E. coli, rotaviruses, giardia, cholera salmonella and hepatitis A virus, render water unsafe to drink. A wiser solution other than expensive bottled water is needed.
Pasteurization is the process of heating water to temperatures that kill them. California State University researchers have proven that water need not be boiled to be pasteurized. Water heated to 150ºF for five minutes makes it safe to drink.
The SSC Solar Water Pasteurizer Kit 103 K when integrated with a particular brand of solar oven not sold by SSC, the LeJoy Solar Food Cooker, can help solve this problem by allowing it to heat and pasteurize water.
The 103 K, one of two classes of water pasteurizing kits, is specifically for “batch” (one-quart-at-a-time) pasteurizing. The leg extenders included in the kit allows the solar oven to be tilted at 45º, an optimum angle for its reflectors to be directed to the sun when used in temperate or geographic zones, areas beyond 23.5º of the equator. For use in tropic zones, areas within 23.5º of the equator, the oven is used without the extenders with a tilt of 22º for an optimum angle to the sun.
